Our Story

Established in 2006 Ecocabs has grown to become the largest taxi and minibus company in South Northumberland. 

We’ve grown our business from one to over 30 taxis, people carriers, minibuses and 22 seater mini coaches by providing a reliable service, quality cars and professional drivers.

Customer service and sustainability are our core ingredients.  We are continuously improving on both fronts, investing in technologies, facilities and our processes to provide a better service whilst minimising our environmental impact.

Our fleet includes electric, hybrid and low emission vehicles which help us and customers to minimise carbon footprints.  This continual drive for greater sustainability goes beyond our vehicles and influences all purchasing decisions and many processes.  From LED light bulbs and refillable consumables to paperless systems and plastic free tea bags, we do what we can big and small to reduce our impact on the environment.

We carefully select our drivers and unlike most other taxi companies, directly employ them which leads to longer length of service and more knowledgeable drivers.   Many are ex-professionals, coming from a range of backgrounds including policing, engineering and teaching.

As we grow we continue to invest in our people, fleet, facilities and technology.  In the last two years we’ve opened our own in-house maintenance facility to improve the reliability and safety of our vehicles, introduced iCabbi to improve communication with customers and journey efficiency and we’ve also installed our own electric car charging point.

What’s next?

We’re working on a number of exciting projects which we will be launching soon.

In the meantime we’re listening to your feedback and finding ways to get better.

So whatever your travel needs are get in touch.  We’ll ensure that every step of your journey is considered and planned – so you don’t have to.
